A not too bad watch but it didn’t my expectations plot-wise and I couldn’t identify as much with Tony Stark this time round.
Iron Man 2 had the requisite big bang slugfests which was a treat to watch on the big screen. Unfortunately the very thing that made the 1st movie a big hit with me was missing in this one. Tony Stark wasn’t as likeable as the first one and if I were to sum it up in one sentence I’d say this:
“Iron Man 2 lacks heart. It lacks the humanity that made the 1st one click.”
To be fair. The movie’s still a great watch and I did watch it in the comfort of GSC’s Gold Class hall in Mid Valley Megamall. I won’t spoil anything for anyone by revealing anything of the plot so I guess you guys will just have to watch it and judge it for yourselves. I’ll still get the Blu-ray though cos’ it’s a great special effects movie and the Iron Man armour is still very much the star of the show.
I give Iron Man 2 a decent 4 out of 5 stars.
Rating: 4 Stars (out of 5)
